Knowing Matt, I'm not entirely sure what he means by this comment, but  
I'm choosing to take it to mean that I work hard, save, and am careful  
with my resources.

It should be known that Matt and I used to work for the same company,  
and he reported to me.

I would also like to pose the question:  *why* can't we change what an  
"average" american is?  Why do we all have to accept that average  
americans are in too much debt, make too little money, and the  
government has to bail them all out?

Perhaps my personal world is too small, but I can't see any  
irrefutable reason why average americans *can't* save money, be more  
prudent where they spend what they earn, and stay out of debt.
